Approves of CEO

I worked at Complete Genomics full-time (More than a year)

Pros

The technology is amazing
The company is working to cure cancer and Alzheimer's!
Generally the office culture seemed great, I really liked the CEO, and I liked my boss

Cons

The health biotech industry in general is a bit of a crapshoot, with all the insane patent fights, challenges in getting sufficient funding, etc.

Advice to Management

Need some sort of "carrot & stick" to better reward the areas that function well and re-align those that keep missing targets. The "stick" should not be punishment, IMHO, but either more employees or different leaders in those areas.
